Closed For Renovation: Please note that the Edo-Tokyo Museum is currently closed for renovation and is planned to reopen in 2025.

The Edo-Tokyo Museum, located in Sumida-ku, Tokyo, is a seven-story museum with one basement level that focuses on the history and culture of Edo and Tokyo, and is about a three-minute walk from JR Ryogoku Station.

In addition to permanent exhibits, the museum holds special exhibitions and events four to five times a year.

The permanent exhibition on the 5th and 6th floors is divided into two zones, Edo and Tokyo, and displays a full-scale model of the old Nihonbashi Bridge and the Nakamura-za Theater (front section), as well as other items from the museum collection such as ukiyo-e woodblock prints and illustrations.

The museum also holds special exhibitions several times a year, featuring exhibits related to cultures from around the world, both domestic and international. In the past, the museum has exhibited manga artists such as Tezuka Osamu and Mizuki Shigeru, which became a topic of conversation.

The museum also has a library, video hall and other learning facilities, as well as a restaurant and museum shop.
